|Be Still My Soul - Asaguare|
Just a mixdown on-the-fly... two acappellas and one drumtrack. Nice little exercise in postprocessing (time-shifting, alot of cutting and rearranging) - had to tweak all 3 tracks to get a straight (here: 92 BPM) beat running. Lyrics: Katharina von Schlegel, 1752 (arrangement of German poem 'Stille, mein Wille') Translation: Jane Borthwick, 1855 Theme: Jean Sibelius, 1865 Vocals: Worship Gospel Choir Percussion: Leafcutter John (binaural drums)

|Hey Friend - Asaguare|
Alternative Pop, dark ambient 70's style. Decades ago, when I used to spend my weekends with friends, just hanging around and listening music, I always wondered: where do they get their tapes, cassettes and platters from? Some numbers, of course, were well-known, say by Pink Floyd, Zappa or Doors; but most of the other stuff was completely unknown to me, wonderful psychedelic ProgRock-ish tunes of bands that I had never heard of...

|Each Other - Asaguare|
Cute little Dance/Pop tune (lyrics/voice: Sue Tompkins). Actually starting as a test for some VST synths and vocoder fx, the arrangement turned out sounding so happy-moody that I had to mix it down.

Techno with Malayian ethno touch.

|Twentyfour Hours - Asaguare|
This one launched out when I was testing a guitar amp VSTe (Poulin LeGion) on drums. Expectedly, the resulting drumloop got kind of a lo-fi distortion, nice for dirty Drum'n'Bass. Normally one would have added corresponding tracks, e.g. aggressive guitars and harsh synth pads, but I decided to go in a different direction: what about using soft vocals and dreamy choir pads? And to my surprise this fusion worked out pretty well...

|Virtual Skitso - Asaguare|
Sort of Electropop. Ironical view on malicious net geeks, more precisely about those who pretend to be other (imaginary) persons in forums, chats, blogs and communities - playing multiple roles even simultaneously. And about ill-natured hackers, razzing us via viruses, rootkits, spoofing, web-traps and other nasty web hobbies. The title (and hence this topic) was a contribution by IGTB, which in the first place made me write these lyrics, haha, thanks again.

|Xtreme Demand - Asaguare|
Ironical RockPop song about industry lobby. Never was too much interested in politics, but a few years ago I somehow came up with the idea to write these lyrics. Well, last week I decided to make it a complete song, so here it is. The original plan was to create an ElectroPop tune, sorta Kraftwerk style, using distorted vocals for a cool industrial touch. But then it got its own will and turned into a more rocking direction...

|Cranial Acres - Asaguare|
Part 1 in the 'Cranial Acres' series, a compilation of psychedelic and experimental sound installations. Last night I had one of those rare lucid dreams again. The whole story was as complex as always; in summary it was about driving in streetcars and meeting people at the stations. However, the most interesting part happened at the very end: I was sitting in a little cafe with a friend and we were discussing philosophical questions about human mind...

|Ragaru - Asaguare|
Indian style Ethno essay. Once again a melody that stuck in my head for about a decade. It was actually an improvisation sequence when a pal tried out his new tabla and I contributed a background theme on guitar. Finally got it recorded and arranged in a new version.

Loquacious bushwa on a rippling House beat.

|Inside Outside - Asaguare|
Long version of a nice and relaxed trancey Tech-House tune. Usually preferring short pieces around 3 or 4 minutes, I made an exception in this case. The vocals are so charming ethereal, the stomping beat keeps a catching groove and the lovery synth patterns float playfully above the scene. This whole song is just chilling from the start, I hope you understand that I had to concede 7 minutes to it. Vocals, lyrics: snowflake

|Jour Apres Jour - Asaguare|
Alternative Classic The french title 'Jour après jour' means 'day after day' and the music describes the fluent ups and downs of days passing by. Although I engrafted a good amount of unusual harmony changes, these inflections aren't conspicuous in such a traditionally composed environment. Btw: this orchestral Essay is my 100th audio production since I started sequencing in december 2007. A centennial jubilee someway needed a touch of classic, so it came out with accordant instrumentation, par...

Sort of progressive Latin Pop. Vocals, lyrics: Tamy
Keywords: progressive; latin; pop; vocals; lyrics; song
|World By The Wayside - Asaguare|
Ambient House. Usually I prefer female vocals for a simple technical reason: their frequency spectrum just make them stand out in a mix. Often I even pitch them up one or two semitones to emphasize their clearness in an arrangement. In this case however I pitched the lead singer Natalie considerably down to get a warm male voice which in my opinion expressed the feeling of the song much better. At least the contrasting female backing vocals are still rather close to their original pitch...

Smooth and minimal Latin Lounge. Vocals, lyrics: SilviaO
Keywords: ambient; minimal; pop; latin; lounge; vocals; lyrics; song; chill
|Carpe Diem Loosa - Asaguare|
Simple pop song with a funky touch. It's about talking quite severely to a youngster who is a good-for-nothing. Writing the lyrics, I sometimes had to smile, because I remembered all the things people told me when they weren't much amused about my lazy way of life when I was a teenager. So in a way these lyrics are fairly timeless; you'll always hear some nice disputes in generation conflicts.

|Ginipiggu - Asaguare|
Experimental This one has a weird atmosphere which is thoroughly intended. Imagine you were locked up in a padded cell, alone with your dark thoughts and fears. Vocals (extract) are by Alvin Lucier who performed several sound art installations, also in collaboration with John Cage.

|French Station Blues - Asaguare|
Just an experimental blues, melted into train noise. After the mixdown I wasn't happy about my humble playing, but I was also not in the mood to rearrange or re-record. Honestly, the best thing in this tune is the honking car at the very end (listen carefully).

|Vuvuzelious - Asaguare|
Technoish beats along vuvuzela drone. I'm not really a soccer fan. I'm not even much interested in this current world championship. But there seem to be many crazy guys in my neighbourhood; when a match is shown on tv you can hear them blowing their horn, called vuvuzela. What an annoying sound when you're about to have a little afternoon sleep. Yet an interesting noise for drones. So here are technoish beats along a rather shy vuvuzela drone.
